Originally from Queensland, Angela grew up with a passion for singing and the creative arts in general.

In 2011 she relocated to Melbourne and made her Victorian, music theatre debut performing the role of Nina in Magnormos' production of DEAR WORLD at the Melbourne Recital Centre.
A natural at the piano, she has become a well versed singer song-writer. With a passion for story-telling, her original songs are a mixture of the quirky, comedic and the telling and are coloured with shades of pop, music theatre, folk and soul. Displaying a balance of vulnerability and humour, Angela weaves her original songs in this show, with well-known classics by famous song-writers, Paul Simon, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Mack Gordon & Harry Warren, Joni Mitchel and others.
Her performances around the country have earned her rave reviews, with The Adelaide Advertiser saying, "Harding... delivered a slick hour of tuneful accord and polished patter to an eagle eyed and eared audience, and a solid fan club...!"
In a show which sees her exploring the highs and lows of employment, marriage and school days while unlocking a vault of well-kept secrets that make her "Just Like You...Only Different."
